Hi so as you see from the title above I'm having tons of issues with audio. At first I was not able to import audio into the library. While I did solve that, now I cannot HEAR the audio when I drag along the timeline OR just hit the play button. I feel like there's some really easy solution to this, but I wouldn't have any idea as to what it is.
If you want to scrub the timeline and hear sound, or if you want to play the sound from somewhere other than the start, you would need to be using an Actions Script 3 FLA, and have the Properties sync option for the sound be set to Stream.
HTML5 Canvas only does Event sync. If you have to make your animation work in HTML5 in the end, first work on the animation as AS3, so you can use Stream sync, then when you're happy with the timing you can use the Commands menu to Convert to Other Document Formats, to make an HTML5 Canvas version.
Thank you so much!!!
Excuse me, currently using Actions Script 3 and this does not work, I chose Action Script 3 and this still wouldn't work, please help.
That's extremely impractical and information that would should be on a need to know basis before selecting a project type.
Which was the part that is extremely impractical?
For anyone else who chances across this 8 month old post, it's worth noting that the convert option is now on the File menu (File/Convert To...), and not in the Commands menu in the later versions of Animate.
And I'm not sure he understands what "need to know basis" means.
I actually just did this on my html project, and it worked beautifully. Make a copy of your work so far (back it up), then convert it to AS3. When I converted the AS3 back to HTML Canvas, it commented out my action script that stopped at a certain frame, and waited for user input (cicking a button to continue). I simply uncommented that Action Script, and now the sound and user control work fine.
Thank you so much for this information but Im having trouble findingwhere to change the properties sync option for the sound be set to Stream. I am using a Macbook. Do you know where I could go to change these on the app?
Thank you for this answer, it worked!
Some notes for implementing this answer:
You need to click on the frame with the audio on in order for the window with changing the Sync to Stream option to become available to you. The properties Sync option can be found in Window - Properties - Frame.
Thanks again man, lots of love ❤️
Thank you, too! I was having the same issue.
Currently using AS3, doesn't work. Help please.
Hey im having a similar problem my audio is a mp3 and its in stream but when i import it then edit my animation the audio cuts off (the audio i have is less then the amount of frames i have for it) and its pretty frustrateing cause the only solution i found for it is just to creaye a new layer and import the sudio again so its up to date please help
what's the problem? the audio stops in the ide (authoring environment) when you scrub/play the timeline containing the audio?
No, its compleately fine when i first import the audio but then if i add more frames anywhere but the end of the animation, it stops aprutly where it was last played and dosent continue the rest of the song
you're adding non-keyframes to a layer that contains non sound and that causes a problem in the layer with sound?
Ya ecept ir dosent matter if it s a key frame or not just adding frames near the middle of the animation
upload your fla (to a file share service) with all the assets needed to demonstrate the problem. ie, it has sound that works without problem until a frame is added to any layer prior to the end of the timeline. post a link.
I didnt do that but i did record it and put it on youtube here you go, if you need something with a better canera or just clearer i can do that
that didn't help.
so again, upload your fla (to a file share service) with all the assets needed to demonstrate the problem. ie, it has sound that works without problem until a frame is added to any layer prior to the end of the timeline. post a link.
When you extend your frames on the top layer you have have to extend them on you sound layer too.
only if the sound is set to stream and only to hear the sound in that last frame. ie, the sound will/should still play regardless of sync property.
